1. Tis Jesus protects me, my fears now remove,
And let me enjoy the sweet smiles of my love;
Though pressed with temptation, the tempter shall fly
Where faith in its power bids Jesus draw nigh;
O come, blessed Jesus, and enter my heart,
And sorrow and sighing shall quickly depart.

2. When Jesus was tempted and tried like a man,
The malice of Satan was vented in vain;
And I, by the power of faith in the Lamb,
May silence the tempter and put him to shame.
O come, blessed Jesus, and enter my heart,
And sorrow and sighing shall quickly depart.

 

3. Hard combats, alas! in the field are at hand:
Ten thousand assailants before us do stand;
But victory is sure on the side of our King,
And they that trust in him shall victory sing;
O come, blessed Jesus, and enter my heart,
And sorrow and sighing shall quickly depart.

4. Here, faith on the one hand gives strength to the soul;
And love on the other the passions control;
The anchor of hope, when it is fixed secure,
The waves of temptation shall safely endure.
O come, blessed Jesus, and enter my heart,
And sorrow and sighing shall quickly depart.
